WOL and then power on equipment with IR
« on: June 10, 2011, 09:39:33 am »
Hi,
I want to make sure I can get everything working before I install on all my media centers.
What I want to do is run a dedicated LinuxMCE server and then on an orbiter turn on a pc with WOL, but the tricky thing will be for that pc to then once its on turn on my tv and receiver with IR. I do not have serial or ethernet on my tv's and receivers.

That's exactly what LinuxMCE is doing. Well, not exactly, atm, it waits for you to select media to play, before turning on AV gear.

I don't wake the machine up because stays on all the time but every morning the LMCE turns the TV in my bedroom on and plays a playlist of my choosing.  When I stop it playing the music the TV remains on for 10 mins and then LMCE shuts it off again
